Craving a new smartphone but don't have a pocket full of cash to spend? As luck would have it, Sony Ericsson's Xperia 10 has been spotted in some Best Buy stores selling for $1. Naturally you need to sign up for a 2-year service agreement, and the special pricing is only available for new customers, but there's another reason why you might want consider this one.
According to Engadget , Sony Ericsson is promising to address complaints of the Xperia 10's janky UI and software by updating the phone with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). That should tidy things up a bit, though be warned that the update isn't coming until the end of the second quarter, so if patience isn't one of your virtues, you'll want to look elsewhere.
This also appears to be an in-store only special, perhaps as Best Buy looks to clear out remaining inventory. As a refresher, the Xperia X10 sports a 4-inch capacitive touchscreen with a 480x854 resolution, 1GHz processor, 1GB internal storage, 384MB RAM, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, microSD card slot (8GB included), and 8MP camera with autofocus and LED flash.
